Long and Low Western Flyer

I've had this Western Flyer reproduction for a while. I believe these were done in the 80s. It's not really worth much (I traded a wheel set for it), but it's cool, and looks old, making it a good…Continue

Tweed Ride in Sacramento

Scrap Metal Boardtracker Motorcycle Sculpture

In between bike stuff, I've been putting together this boardtracker, from round stock, washers, bike spokes, two car wheel lugs for the engine, springs, and a Canadian nickel for the seat.…Continue

Long and Low Western Flyer

I've had this Western Flyer reproduction for a while. I believe these were done in the 80s. It's not really worth much (I traded a wheel set for it), but it's cool, and looks old, making it a good option to dice up. The plan was to cut it up, slam it down to the ground, low and low. The goal was to have the fender be the highest point of the bike. Here was the starting point:…See More

Tweed Ride in Sacramento

This weekend is the Winter Tweed Ride here in Sacramento. I decided to add this in here, just in case there's that slim chance that someone sees this, and would be interested. Short notice, I know, and we're all very spread out on this site, but it doesn't hurt anything to mention it. And hey, if you're not around here, but it does sound interesting, there are tweed rides all over, so you can look into it.Unlike many other bicycle rides that I participate in, much of the emphasis of the tweed…See More

The Art of the File Knife

My grandfather was a knife maker, paint store owner, builder of race cars, and, if you go back far enough, sailor. I have a small amount of tools and materials that I inherited from him, including some large files, so I decided to do something made popular in the 30s, make a file knife.Before the 20th Century, knives were cheap, and files were very expensive, being very difficult to make, so it was the other way around. From the 1700s, some blacksmiths used old high carbon knives to make files…See More

My Two Most Recent Bicycle Builds

My two most recent builds are very different from each other, and cover the spectrum of what I've been doing lately. The first was one built for a national build off. I was one of seven builders selected to compete, presenting the final bikes at the O.B.C. custom bicycle show in Las Vegas. The requirements were that the frame be built from scratch, that it have a springer fork, also made by the builder, and that it only be human powered. I didn't win, but I do now own a cool bike.I started with…See More

Scrap Metal Car

The next metal sculpture I made from scrap metal and junk doodads that I had on hand is this 30s inspired rat rod car. Parts include skateboard wheels, remnant sheet metal, a brass ball valve, copper tubing ends, nails, the hardware from a trophy, and a bicycle head badge. I put this up for sale on my Instagram, and it blew up, and sold very quickly.…See More

Rat Rod Wagon

I had the idea to build something cool to haul my swap meet finds with, and after some starts and stops, I built this Radio Flyer sized rat rod wagon, that I pull with a dog chain. I built the body out of 16g steel, the rear wheels are from a kids trike, the front wheels are kids training wheels. The engine is a plumbing valve, and piping parts. The grill is a brass floor drain cover, surrounded by the base of a fire poker set. The front axle does pivot to turn.…See More

Not a truck, but part of one

It's true that my latest bicycle build isn't a car or motorcycle, exactly, but I thought it appropriate to post it here, because I made the bike based around a car part. Specifically, a 40s Chevy 6 lug truck wheel, with a lovely old nylon 8-ply tire wrapped around it. The tire is old, and too fragile to be on a truck anymore, and I got it from a neighbor for free, so I thought it would be a perfect candidate for a project that I'd been wanting to try. I pushed my fabrication skills further than…See More

Genderbent Higgins

I picked up this ladies 50s J.C. Higgins from a bike forum about 6 months ago, for a specific gender reassignment project that I wanted to do. I wanted to stretch the top of the bike, but leave the bottom as is, so that it could fit on your standard rack, and whathaveyou. I wanted to make this gender bend have a little more attitude. I wanted it to be mean looking, but still have the parts keep their patina. The mix of old and new... that could be called dieselpunk, no? Here is a picture of…See More

X.L. Higgins Bicycle

This build was a little more straight forward than some of my others. I took a perfectly good post war Murray built J.C. Higgins frame with a tank, cut it up, and stretched it. Ultimately, I used every part of the frame except the seat tube. I then added some tubing to lengthen it, drop it down a little bit, and add some mean lines to it.I finished the build with vintage parts that I have collected over the last year. A beehive style springer fork, a seat that I built, a pre-war heavy duty…See More

My Bike Hauler

About two years ago, I bought this 1954 Chevy pick up to have a cool bike hauler when taking my bikes to shows. It's an ongoing project, but here's how she looks so far.…See More

The Shelgin Bicycle

It started with a girl's 1950s Shelby frame/fork combo that I got for pretty cheap. I mainly got it because it had a cool tank and a Shock-Ease fork. Enter a 37-ish Elgin frame that I bought from an outdoor antique furniture market for $20. The headtube had been cut up, so I told myself that since it was already butchered, why not cut it off, save the section of the Shelby frame that I like, and marry them?I even threw in the bottom loop of a Worksman 24" frame that I had cut up for a different…See More

The Penny Fakething

All who read these pages are going to be familiar with the ordinary bicycle, also known as a boneshaker, and most commonly known as the penny farthing. There is a company near me that makes a 48" ordinary replica, very well constructed, but with a price tag of $1,200. I'm a member of an online bike building group called Freakbikers United. We build and share "freak bike" ideas. Bikes with unusual geometry, tall bikes, multiple wheels, etc. It's good fun. The group recently had a competition to…See More

Tractorliner Bicycle

For one of my latest bike builds, I'd been wanting to build a new frame using all vintage parts for a while, but I felt like I needed a cool center piece to bring it all together. I don't even remember how I came up with the idea to use an old kid's pedal tractor body as a tank, but that's what I did. It was a Murray brand tractor, and since Murray bicycles often had "-liner" in the name, such as Flightliner or Spaceliner, I called this the Tractorliner. It features a skiptooth wheelset,…See More

The Red Baron Bicycle

Looking over the site, I realized it's been a long time since I've posted any of my Dieselpunk related bicycle builds. And yes, there have been a few. The diesel style is in me, so most of my bikes have some amount of *punk influence, just some more obviously than others. Most recently my builds are new scratch built frames with vintage parts. But this time, I wanted to show you a bike I built I call the Red Baron. Similar to a previous build I posted, I was going for a 1910 Indian motorcycle…See More

My Latest Bicycle Creation, by Deven Science

Posted on November 4, 2009 at 12:59am 2 Comments

Today was another productive day. I went over to my friend Kevin's shop to work on these bicycle parts I wanted to make. Knowing I was now to be back to work soon, and therefore short on time, I put the idea of making a springer front end on hold for now. I decided to make a simpler one that would still be unique. I cut the forks it had, extended them, and welded them back together at an angle so that the wheel would poke out further forward. I then welded a small brace on either side, to make… Continue

My Dieselpunk Outfit, So Far, by Deven Science

Posted on October 26, 2009 at 10:00pm 5 Comments

This weekend was fairly relaxing, as my girlfriend Kris and I had little on the agenda, but to work on our Halloween/dieselpunk costumes. That is, Kris worked on her Halloween costume, since we're still designing her dieselpunk outfit, and we worked on my dieselpunk clothes, since I'm just using last year's Cobra Commander costume. IThe hood was too tight last year, giving me a massive headache by the end of the night, so Kris has agreed to alter the hood before the day of.



We ended… Continue
